Hello Love Layout

Creating a beautiful layout doesn't have to be difficult and time consuming.  I've got a tutorial on how to create this layout today on FotoBella's blog.  Check it out!  

My Mind's Eye Jubilee is the beautiful collection used to make this layout.  The journal cards are a main staple in this design.

I love the gold in this collection.  It's just the right touch any project needs.

You Are Loved Layout

Once I got started creating with this fabulous collection I couldn't stop!  Which one is that you ask?  My Mind's Eye, Jubilee!  It's fantastic.  Really.  Fantastic.

Now ask me if I like taking selfies and I'll say heck no!  To my surprise when I was digging through my photos, I found these selfies I took back when my son was around a year old...2009/2010.  Were they called selfie's then? lol.  And was it that trendy?  I really don't know but these one's are pretty cute.

Back to Jubilee, look at these fun embellishments.  Gold letters, enamel dots, the bicycle, it's all sooo cute!  

And then there's the pennants, I always love those!

Have a fabulous day!

That Was Fun Layout

Hey there, it's Apryl with FotoBella's Design Team.  One of the newest bundles at FotoBella is My Mind's Eye Jubilee.  Have you seen it yet?  Well, here's one of the layouts I'm featuring using the Jubilee bundle.  

The fun arrow patterns and polka dots are bright and festive, perfect for birthday photos and ice cream sundaes at Farrell's!  The Jubilee Collection is yummy enough to eat also.  

Love the chipboard stickers and how they really pop against the dark red card stock.

And the arrows, one of my favorite patterned papers in this collection.  What will your favorite be?  Stop by Fotobella.com and see!

Have a fabulous day!

Unique Gift Box

Hello there!  Today I'm here to share a gift box that I made for FotoBella Design Team.

I saw this diagram that was posted by Scrappin' Escapes on Facebook and it was done with a paper plate.  I thought why a paper plate when I have all these beautiful  papers to play with that would make a great gift box.

The FotoBella bundle I'm using is Basic Grey's Grand Bazaar.  

Have a fabulous day!

Society Fifty-Two Challenge

Ok, it's been three weeks now since Society Fifty-Two launched it's weekly design challenges.  If you haven't checked it out yet on Instagram, you really should @society52.  It's awesome.  This weeks challenge was to use banners and the Thursday twist was to add 3 circles.

Here is my take on the challenge:

Banners are always fun to use on a layout.  On mine I chose to use large banners.  I added the circles with the embellishments.  The collection you see here is from Doodlebug Designs Day to Day collection. 

Lots of vibrant colors in this layout, which goes perfectly with the fun-loving photo of my son and his great fashion sense!  And in case you are wondering....he did wear that to school that day.

Have a fabulous day!  Follow me on Instagram @adh_j and follow @society52 to stay in the loop every week on what the fun challenges are.  It's a great way to spark your creative juices and get layouts done!

Grand Bazaar Card

One of the best bundles FotoBella has right now is Basic Grey's Grand Bazaar collection .  It is really beautiful with all it's fun patterns and vibrant colors.  There are endless possibilities especially when it comes to designing a card.  

An any occasion card is one of my favorite to make.  On this one, I left space at the top and bottom so that I could easily add the sentiment later to fit my needs.

I combined several of the papers and lined them up down the middle of the card.  Then layered embellishments to create the focal point of the card.  So fun and beautiful!  Another great bundle offered by FotoBella!

Smart Like A Fox

Hello Summer!  Kids are finally out of school, woohoo!  This is one of the photos snagged off the bulletin board the last day of school.  My daughter won the award at the beginning of the school year!  Another mom was kind enough to snap this photo since I just happened to be at the hospital in labor with her little sister at the same time!

Such an assortment of embellishments come with FotoBella's bundle.  I really love the black and gold wood pieces.  That fox, oh that fox is so cute!  I just had to use it.  You can see that I did hold off on the journaling for this layout.  I usually do all of my journaling at one time, once I have all the layouts in order and ready to go into the album.  That way I get all the facts straight and in order!

The chipboard sticker pieces are really amazing.  Great pop of color next to that black outline.  

Have a fabulous day!
